We managed to capture a rare performance by the (Heart) Rokita Band, a three piece band from the Greater Lafayette area, at last night’s (October 4th, 2013) Vienna Open Mic. This bootleg is a censored version due to a request of the employees. Apparently there were children present.
Don’t worry. Rumor has it that a complete, uncensored, polished studio version will be released soon.
You Gotta Be More Like Todd Rokita: (5:21) MP3 | OGG
Described as “bad ass, kick ass, pretty much the best”, this stoop-metal band has played more than a few concrete slabs in their day.
On this particular occasion, they chose to play the July 13th Mosey Down Main Street due to the “millions” of captive audience members they could subject to their noise. After our ears bled (we forgot our plugs), we tried to encourage them to allow fill-ins, explore side projects, and get as many people involved in their artistic circle.
Enjoy the interview and bootleg of their single, Charybdis Deep.
The Next Columbine Interview 2013-07-13: (7:07) MP3 | OGG
Doberman. Loud. Noisy. Theatric. Shin splitting gravel sounds emitted through various amplifiers. The show opened with some found sound from an interview and then broke way to a larger cacophony of sounds, supplied by its diverse instrumentation.
